After a near fall left Owens stumbling outside of the ring, Zayn told him to “just stay down,” although Owens would not, rather grasped for Zayn who pulled away.
Roman Reigns would continue his assault, with a massive spear through the barricade and then twice slamming Owens’ head into the steel steps.
With Sami Zayn watching on, Reigns seemed to be sending a direct and clear message to Sami Zayn as he paused to stare down Paul Heyman and Zayn.
Heyman urging Zayn to acknowledge his Tribal Chief, he raised his finger to the sky shortly before one last violent spear took down Kevin Owens.
Roman Reigns is still the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion as his 881 day reign continues.
After the match, with Reigns celebrating in the ring the rest of the Bloodline joined the celebration as Jey Uso began to grant Sami Uso an honor.
Although Reigns stopped Jey, he was offering him a matched red lei along with the Bloodline.
Instead, Jimmy and Jey waged an additional assault on a defenseless Kevin Owens as Sami Zayn watched on.
With Reigns’ arm around Zayn, the former Underdog from the Underground watched on as longtime friend Owens was decimated by the Bloodline.
With a chair around Owens’ neck, Sikoa laid a vicious bomb into the corner before Owens was handcuffed to the top rope.
With round after round of big superkicks to the face, the Usos left very little of Kevin Owens left and when Reigns was about to hit him with a chair, Zayn stepped between them.
With Sami Zayn audibly telling Reigns, “It’s enough. This is beneath you. You’re better than this. You are. He’s done, it doesn’t need to go any further,” Reigns instead extended the chair to Zayn.
Telling Sami that he should do it, he protested that Kevin was done and they didn’t need to do this. With the rest of the Bloodline looking on, Zayn took the chair from the champ.
With Roman saying that Owens has held Sami down like an anchor since day one, he screamed at Sami to “pull the trigger!”
Zayn holding the chair, momentarily appearing to consider hitting Roman, Reigns began slapping Zayn and yelling in his face, turning his back to Zayn again.
Raising the chair, Sami Zayn hit Roman Reigns in the back with it!
Turning to face the Usos, he said “I’m sorry,” as he too was kicked it the face as Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa took particular violent offense to the betrayal in their attack on Zayn.
However the one member of the Bloodline who couldn’t go further with the attack on the Honorary Uce and fled the ring?
WWE’s Royal Rumble ended with Roman Reigns waging a vicious beat down on Sami Zayn as the Road the WrestleMania really has just begun!
Oh also, the crowd chanting, “F**k you Roman!” as he sprinkled the mangled remains of the lei on Zayn’s lifeless body.
